One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

This challenge is brought to us by Nancy and she wants to see a CAS Birthday know, keep it Clean and Simple!

I pulled out an older PTI stamp called Autumn Adornments and did some ink blending with a dauber on the leaves to get the feel of a real autumn leaf changing colors.

My sentiment is from PTI:  Autumn Hills

 Ranger Copper embossing powder for the sentiment

And go check out the inspiration from the design team and our Special Party Guest, ASA!

Heart Hugs, friends!
